support with almost $2 billion in foreign aid? ambassador john bolton was one of the very first to warn, be careful what you wish for when the arab spring drove morsi's predecessor, mubarak, from power. that guy was basically a dictator too but he was a pro-western dictator. now there is a question whether we have upgraded and whether the egyptian people have. we'll ask ambassador bolton what he thinks. >>> in washington we're hearing new concerns over the fate of the recently ramped up budget talks in washington and what they're talking about is your money and how much they're going to take. after a growing number of liberal democrats now say they would rather see a series of automatic tax hikes punish all americans rather than to agree to spending cuts or deals they don't like and they believe compromise their principles. this comes despite warnings from the congressional budget office that the tax hikes now about to take place could throw the economy back into recession. two million more americans could be left out of a job and most troubling of all according to the pentagon, the cou
-fire in the gaza strip. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton joined us earlier to weigh in saying it's no coincidence. >> he didn't wait but one day before moving here. so whether he had a wink and a nod from president obama or whether whether he felt emboldened in the wake of the cease-fire to believe the u.s. would not criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out in the next few days. the timing is not coincidental. you can bet on that. >> heather: coming up the latest reaction from the white house to the turmoil in egypt. we will have a live report from washington. >> gregg: new signs of tough challenges ahead for gaza. number two leader of hamas now saying the group will not stop arming itself. a commented suggesting that indirect negotiations on the border deal could be very difficult. in the meantime, life at the gaza strip returning to normal after the week long strikes. tens of those of children heading back to school. cease-fire appears to be holding. conner powell with more on that. >> reporter: this is still fragile cease-fire.
to the president's picks. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. senator obama voted gaps john bolton, alito and john roberts. he had a very high bar for confirmation. i have a very low bar. i'm going to listen to what susan rice has to say, put her entire record in context. but i'm not going to give her a plus for passing on a narrative that was misleading to the american people, and whether she knew it was misleading or not. >> you won't filibuster her appointment? >> i'm going to wait to see what the state department has to say, but i'm very disappointed in susan rice, somebody who knew nothing about benghazi, telling a story that was disconnected from reality that did make the president look good at a time when quite frankly the narrative should have been challenged, not reinforced, that al qaeda was dismantled. that's what they wanted us to believe, that al qaeda was dismantled, and benghazi was exhibit a that that storyline was not working and was untrue. >> let me turn to the issue of david petraeus and his resignation, because of his affair. he's been central to this benghazi testimony. but t
's nomination for secretary of state john bolton, what republicans are using that. >> exactly. another one who had a reputation for being an aggressive bulldog too. history repeats itself, i guess. >>> moving on to other news this morning, tampa socialite jill kelley, of course, caught up in the big petraeus sex scandal, well, now she's fighting back. attorneys hired by kelley are going after a new york man who claimed kelley tried to use her connection to former cia director david petraeus to broker a deal with the south korean government. this morning's "the new york times" reports that the investigation into e-mails between kelley and general john allen is focused on only 70 messages of the thousands that were allegedly exchanged. >>> we may hear from the army private charged with the biggest security breach in u.s. history. bradley manning accused of spilling secrets to wikileaks will, testify at a pretrial hearing as early as tomorrow. manning faces possible life imprisonment if convicted of aiding the enemy. the most serious of the 22 charges against him. >>> with the recovery costs from
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
